An amateur production presented by arrangement with Musical Theatre International (Europe)
Premiere of the acclaimed Triple Threat Festival Company’s production before it tours to Brighton and Newbury Festivals! Winner of the 2003 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, a compelling mixture of Ahrens and Flaherty’s musical genius delivered by one of the finest company of young performers on the circuit, of a story of family, friendship and acceptance set in 1960s Dublin. A truly rare gem combining depth, drama, lyricism, comedy and rich music!
Bus driver Alfie Byrne’s attempt to stage Oscar Wilde’s ’Salome’ against the forces of bigotry collapses his friendship circle. How he wins them back has inspired audiences everywhere! It may be your most important night out of the year! Under the Musical Direction of Stuart Hutchinson conducting a West End live band. The Newbury Festival show is sponsored by Claude-Michel Schonberg, such is the talent of the cast.
